But I totally recommend reading Rachel Ignotovsky's gorgeously illustrated Women in Sports which tells the stories of women athletes who made history, and it will get you all hyped up for your next race or softball game. A mixed bag, mostly delightful, occasionally moving, sometimes hilarious.

It becomes a race against the soldiers to warn their fathers and escape before both families are arrested by the soldiers! I liked the bit about older libraries and how everything was written on clay and when some power set it on fire, it meant that they were preserved, lol.
